Jadeja hits a triple century

Rajkot: Ravindra Jadeja became the first Indian batsman, and only the eighth in first-class history, to hit three triple centuries as his career-best unbeaten 320 helped Saurashtra reach a mammoth 534 for six against Railways, in a Ranji Trophy Group A match, on Sunday.

Jadeja, who had smashed 303 in the first match of the season, against Gujarat, scored his second triple hundred, third overall, to become the only Indian cricketer to achieve such a feat. He joined an elite list of seven others who have three triple centuries to their credit. They are Sir Don Bradman, Brian Lara, Bill Ponsford, Wally Hammond, WG Grace, Graeme Hick, and Mike Hussey.
